The xsl:number element provides for auto-numbering. The format attribute and, potentially, the letter-value attribute can be used to internationalize numbering. Any alphanumeric character that h...more
While the char type is basic to the Java language, many programmers stumble over Unicode escapes, values and conversions. The first definition should be familiar: A 16 bit primitive data type w...more
Actually there are 25. The unexpected "extra" one comes about because there is a time zone for UTC+12 hours and one for UTC-12 hours. The International Date Line cuts through the middle of these...more
To get some ideas ( here relating to ResourceBundles ), code and other links, see the article Use XML as a Java Localization Solution.more

See Is ASCII considered a subset of Unicode, or are they disjoint sets? for the reason the code below works. Assuming your target string is str1: int len = str1.length(); int codePoint; char...more
Visit the Pampers site. It was deployed and developed using ATG Dynamo that itself uses Java.

It is really difficult to have a standard format for the addresses for different countries. Not all cities in all the countries are planned and constructed nor is there any particular agreemnet be...more
How can I create a global ResourceBundle that will be recognized by all the classes in my application?
Actually, ResourceBundles are effectively global within a VM. The reason is that a private static cache is searched and used to retain previously obtained bundles. Note that all variants of getB...more
In your exception subclass, override the getLocalizedMessage(Locale locale) method. You would then need to fetch the locale-specific message from the appropriate ResourceBundle.more
No doubt there are numerous ones in East Asian languages and countries. For those of us who can't read them, try Sun's Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Vietnamese Internationalization Questions.more
